“Best staying in Egypt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I was on vacation with my mom in May. It was my 3d time in Egypt and the best one I think. You can find everything you want in this hotel. I'm not that kind of person who only stays in the hotel at vacation. But at that time the only thing I needed was to relax. And Domina was the perfect place to do it. The staff was very helpful and nice. We were living in 56 building. Very nice location near the pool and restaurant. It's only 7 min to the beach and you can always take a small car which is circulating around. The territory is beutiful! and they taking good care of the flowers and plants! I felt there like in little Italy - so many Italians everywhere. Food was good, even the wine you could drink) Usually it's not possible to drink alcohol in Egyptian hotels) The beach was very big and the rife amazing! we even saw a shockfish. And there was a stork walking along the beach in the morning! ) A lot of activities - dancing, fitness, aqua aerobics. Thank you very much for wonderful time. I needed it so much after a long winter in Russia)))

after reading som of the reviews i expected this place to be shocking. It was no where near that! the complex was great. well looked after and totally clean. Every day they had gardeners looking after the place and making it perfect. The rooms were cleaned daily and nothing wrong with them. No insects or dirt to be seen. We ofter returned to the room mid-day to get out of the sun for a while and the air-conditioning it the room was just what you needed.
The staff were extremely kind and carried your bags everywhere and helped you out where possible. the beach is awesome and so is the snorkelling.
The only thing i can fault about the place is the food was often cold. However there was a man who made fresh pasta and sauce for you when you went up which was always hot and tasty.
Then the Russians. Yeah, some jump infront of you whilst you are waiting for food, and they do drink alot, but so what. You are on holiday and so are they. if you dont bother them they wont bother you. The staff always smiled at us because we were english so werent as rude as the other guests.
We got drinks at all bars so no problems there.
I want here with my girlfriend and had an amazing relaxing holiday. Would certainly go again!
P.S. you get a 20%-30% discount at the fancy restaurants...try these as the food was gorgeous and a nice treat to finish our list night on.
Thanks alot, Matt - Leeds

Hotel was clean although I wouldnt say 5 star, but that wasnt a problem. Food was pretty much the same each meal, and being a really fussy eater I still didnt starve, but it was cold mostly. There are lots of steps and hills, and walking to get to the resturant then back to the bar or the pool. There is a taf taf (BUS) service but only used it once. The staff were great which is what i seem to find with most in egypt anyhow, although the managers didnt seem to like them talking to tourists. Lots of russians, which were rude, loud, and damn right ignorant. No evening entertainment. Only really caters for the russians. Plastic cups to drink out of. ( although we were told by staff that this was to save money by not employing staff to wash and collect glasses). Safe didnt work, aircon was intermittant. Mini bar was great, topped up everyday with 2 llitres of water, 2 cans of coke, sprite and orange, and replenised anytime you asked. The shops were many and varied although i found this to be like running the gauntlet, and much much more expensive than the last time i went to egypt. Close to airport but not a problem.
You cant use every pool or every bar even though all inclusive. Only wine or beer with your meals. Spa pools looked fab although about 170euros to use. The trips were resonably priced and no hard sell by the staff either, who loved to talk to you, they llike the english. Accommodation is a little outdated but clean, lots of wood kind of oldy worldy, but clean. Bathrooms could do with being redone, but again clean. Room service quick and efficient we paid £10 for burger and chips, which sounds expensive but was worth the money. If going take plenty of stuff for mosquito bites, i dont usually get bitten but this time i think i was their main meal, i was covered. Because of the size of the complex i felt that it lost the personal touch that i had experienced in smaller hotels. Pool 56 was the best place to sit for those who like sitting by the pool, had the best days here, usually only a maximum of about 10 people there which was great and the staff were lovely. Would not go here again, and not worth the monies i paid. However, if you get a great discount it would not be a disaster, i have had a lot worse. Yes its more like a 3 star, but it was clean, and regulary saw inpectors checking for this. Plenty of security around at night as well, although never saw or heard of any trouble. Staff are over worked and under paid, so please tip them. They work 7 days a week and if it wasnt for them I wouldnt have enjoyed any of the holiday.

Room Tip: Somewhere in the middle of the resort, 8 hotels in this resort so more like a little village.

There is no way this is a five stars resort, The resort needs a lot more attention, the resort is so big in such a way that it went over control.
- No privacy at all, staff just opens the room door and walk in,
- Food is terribe, my booking was for 7 nighs I could only stay for one night
- Close to the airport and away from everything else.
- No activities what so ever.
- Staff are not friendly at all and they look so weird. The whole place at night is like watching a horror movie.
- The management is so stupid that they have their own time zone.
- All the drinks they offer at the bars are alcoholic only or otherwise taste and looks like crap. They serve Coffee in plastic cups.
- This resort is only good for you if all u need is just alchol and sea and nothing else.
- I wouldn't recommend it to anybody, I would suggest you pay a little bit more money and go to a better resort.

Hotel room furnishings are old and it is not renewed. Increased scavenge the room, but the floors are still dirty and the furniture was tolmune.We had AI (All Inclusive) package. But this means that "free drinks" (local alcohol) you can get only be certain to 0.2 cups in specific bars. All imported alcohol is priced and very expensive.
We wanted to order a cocktail rum withCoca-cola. Its paid 12 USD. Rum in a cocktail was local, so we wanted to exchange it against Bacardi. The single dose for import rum is 15 cl !!! So we ordered a double, or 3 cl (local rum dose is 4cl). One dose of Bacardi rum cost 13 USD, double is 26 USD and has yet to be paid in addition to Coca-Cola for 1 USD. Total price for a cocktail 27 USD.?! What is the point at a cocktail, when I have to pay separately for everything?
Food is disgusting!! All time same food and it seemed to me that they just warm up the old dishes. I heard that a Russian woman's baby got food poisoning there!

We had a rest in Domina Hotel and Resort El Sultan 5* in the end of December above 7 days. The basic idea of a trip was to sunbathe and go on excursion to Israel. We were in Egypt before there 5 times the basic sights of Egypt have visited and not once in last trips.
In plans there were Alexandria, Lake Nasser and Abu Simbel temples . Some years ago we already were in Domina Coral Bay King's Lake. We were delighted with last visiting Coral Bay King's Lake simply (summer, all inclusive with visiting of all restaurants, free using an electromobile, free daily visiting of enormous Jacuzzis and steam rooms). Now even in Coral Bay King's Lake doesn’t remain a former privilege. However the hotel remained in a category where it is possible to go. Three pontoons, on a beach the Sultan diving – the center, evening musicals on Arena, huge territory of hotel, good animation for Egypt, its gulf (extent about 2 km with the big sandy beach) serious arguments in favor of hotel. But I had now a main point - safety. Were just during this period when it has been closed for bathing because of threat of sharks. I in last summer visiting of Egypt, in days free from excursions till some hours spent in Red Sea. We swam away far from coast (in Hurghada on 200 - 400 meters from coast). Such careless, "safe" Red Sea any more won't be when.
